Hi all. I just thought I’d show you a few of the plants and trees I have in flower at the moment.
These are the Daffodils that are in my front garden.

This little clump flowers by the front door. I actually pulled this bulb out many years ago, but I must have left a piece still in the ground, as every year it produces more and more flowers. Last year there were 12 heads and this year there are 14 heads.

This is one of two Camelia bushes I have. The other one is white and at the top of the garden, but never really matures as Hubbies friendly horses keep putting there heads over the fence and eating it haha.

This is my beautiful Dicentra. I say beautiful, because when I cut this back, I cut it to ground level, and it never fails to impress me when it grows back. Every year it grows so vigourously and produces so many flowers it looks a spectacle in the border, as it’s elegant sprigs droop and hang over the lawn.

These Muscari are in reprieve, as I thought I’d lost them to the elements, but as I was sorting out what pots needed to be disgarded, I saw a glimmer of hope, so decided to leave them alone and see if were still alive, and hey presto, here they are.

These little Pansies are what my young Granddaughter planted in plastic cups in school last year. She transplanted them under supervision into this trough, and I can tell you, she is well happy to see this years results.

These are suppose to be Pink Double Centred Daffodils and I have to say they look nothing like the picture in the bulb catalogue.

This is my Pieris, and it’s the best show of flowers I’ve ever had on it.

These are Marjoram and Chives. I thought I’d lost them to the frost, but they are looking good.

Hope you’ve enjoyed looking at the flowers I have in the garden at the moment. :o))

Its so nice to see new life returning to plants you thought you had lost, you have some lovely plants Linda, I love your Camelia, mine didnt flower this year as it suffered badly with the frost, but is starting to liven up now, and I found a tiny speck of new growth on my Shasta Daisy today which I though I had lost.;0)

Thankyou TT.
Thankyou Pansy.
Yes the plants are starting to appear now. I thought I'd lost quite a few, but they're slowly reappearing, except I thought I'd lost my strawberries and went and bought 6 new plants as I'd promised my granddaughter she could help to plant them, and now mine are just starting to reappear, but not sure how well they will come. :o))

Thankyou Lauram. I think I've lost my Cyclamen, but will have to wait and see. So far so good, most of the plants are showing signs of life.
